The Motorland Aragon circuit in Spain will continue to host MotoGP until the 2021 season after a contract extension was announced by series officials on Thursday.

Carmelo Ezpeleta, CEO of MotoGP commercial rights holder Dorna, confirmed that a new five-year deal had been struck to keep the premier motorcycle world championship at Motorland Aragon.

Aragon has played host to MotoGP since 2010, winning the award for the best grand prix for three of the last six years, including the 2015 trophy that was presented to the track on Thursday.

Spain will retain its allocation of four grands prix for the foreseeable future, with Aragon being joined on the provisional 2017 calendar by Jerez, the Circuit de Catalunya in Barcelona and Valencia.

Next year’s Aragon Grand Prix is scheduled for September 24.
